My favourite every day breakfast porridge.

prep time 5 mins     total time 10 mins      serves 1


ingredients

  • 1 cup (90g) oats
  • 1 cup (250ml) plant milk
  • 1 cup (235ml) water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • Handful frozen mixed berries
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
 

method

  1. Add oats, milk, water, chia seeds and cinnamon to a pan and continuously stir over a low heat.
  2. Pour the frozen berries into a separate pan and simmer over a low heat as the porridge cooks.
  3. Keep stirring the oats until all the liquid is absorbed and add to a bowl.
  4. Pour over the berries and a glug of maple syrup, and enjoy!

notes

  • This portion size can easily be adjusted according to your appetite, just make the ratio 1:2 oats to liquid.
  • This is a basic recipe for porridge oats, so get creative with your favourite fruits, nut butters, seeds and sweeteners!
  • Lazy person hack: add the berries into the oats, instead of a separate pan, to save washing up (it also makes it a very pretty purple colour).
